Access Hollywood asked the star what her feelings were about the wave of allegations and accusations coming to light regarding sexual misconduct in Hollywood. Her response has Twitter talking. It's not just what Uma said that caught people's attention, it's the way she said it.
The normally effervescent actress struggled through her words without cracking her ever-present smile or making any effort to hide the anger from her face.
"...I don't have a tidy soundbite for you..."
After warning the interviewer that she wouldn't have a neat little clip, she explained her perspective to the best of her ability.
"I don't have a tidy soundbite for you, because I have learned I am not a child and I have learned that when I have spoken in anger I usually regret the way I express myself. So when I'm ready, I'll say what I have to say."
So many women can relate to this rage because we've been hurt, abused and humiliated by men in power, not just in Hollywood, this is society— Heather🌈❤️😍 (@Ellinorianne) November 4, 2017

She is either a GREAT actress or I believe every bit of her comments. No pity on the creep who is on the receiving end of her future tirade— RU KIDDING (@ThomONeil1) November 5, 2017
Uma Thurman powerful response: she tells nothing, and yet, she says EVERYTHING.— Celso Bessa (@celsobessa) November 5, 2017
